The purpose of the workshop series, Introducing..., is to acquaint DSA members and the community to different mediums and methods in the visual arts. In conjunction, the attendees will get to know the instructing artist, their background, and tips and tricks of their trade. The fee goes to compensate the artists’ time, so by attending you’ll not only gain knowledge in a specific medium, but you’ll also be supporting local artists! Future workshops may have an additional hands-on project, and in those cases an additional fee will be added to cover material costs.
